What does the CD Rom contain?

This CD-Rom is designed for non-horse-oriented emergency responders and anyone else who wants to learn about horses. It introduces people to horses, starting in a classroom setting, then moving into an arena for hands on introduction to live animals.

Horse Awareness and Safety gives you basic tools to help you respond to an incident involving horses.

Why should emergency responders learn about horses?

According to experts, the most critical safety issue at the scene of a large animal incident is the responders lack of knowledge of and experience around large animals.

Most emergency responders in North America live and work in urban areas and have little contact with large animals such as horses, but thousands of these critters pass through their jurisdictions every year.

Even if you work in the downtown area of a large city, sooner or later you could get that dreaded call -- a trailer rollover. If you are first to arrive on the scene and assume command, would you know how to handle the animals involved? Most rescue personnel do not. You're not trained for it, and its dangerous in ways you do not understand.

Why should Scouts, 4-H and other groups need this information?

Many organizations involving youngsters have a teaching system wherein their members learn about specific topics to earn badges or credits. Horsemanship is often one of these topics.

The information contained in the CDRom is basic and would be of interest to schoolteachers looking for an easy to teach topic of instruction outside their typical curriculum.

Disaster and rescue groups often need to train their volunteers before sending them out into the field. This CDRom provides an overview of one of the larger and more dangerous animals they may be called upon to rescue.

Businesses involving horses, such as boarding stables, trainers, breeding farms and horse haulers are constantly hiring new personnel. Make sure your new employees understand the behavior of the animals they are working around. Prevent accidents with a little training!

Did you just purchase a horse?

Not really comfortable around this new, large playmate? Or, perhaps, your horse-crazy son or daughter has finally convinced you to buy a pony. NOW WHAT?

You are a little intimidated by this new creature and are totally in the dark about how to "read" the animal or what medical problems you should watch for. You and your child can learn about this newest member of your family in the comfort of your home with this new CDRom.
